Learn Python from the ground up and use Python to build a hands-on project from scratch!

  Enroll in Course

Want to learn Python "on the job" whilst building an exciting course project? This course is for you!

This is a highly practice-oriented Python course that teaches you Python from scratch - no prior programming experience required!

Python is probably THE most trending programming language you can learn these days!

It's very popular because it's easy to learn and use, runs on all operating systems and allows you to build a broad variety of programs: Be that web applications, desktop applications, utility scripts or using it for data science and machine learning.

In this course, you'll learn Python from scratch - and you'll do so whilst building your own Blockchain and Cryptocurrency. These are of course also highly trending topics and not a lot of people understand what a Blockchain really is. As a nice side-effect, you will know how a Blockchain works once you completed this course. It's an exciting course project that allows you to learn and apply Python to something you know and you can use.


Why Python?

As written above, Python is both easy-to-use and extremely versatile and powerful at the same time. Certainly not the worst combination. If you check it on Google trends (and compare it to other programming languages), you'll see that it's very popular these days.

It's being used by almost any important company - be that Google, Amazon or Facebook. It's used to run web applications, scripts, desktop programs and machine learning algorithms. This course sets the basics for all these use-cases!

Why Blockchain?

I believe that you learn something best if you directly apply it to a real-world project. And the Blockchain technology is an exciting trend which is there to stay. In this course, you'll learn a lot about the core concepts of the Blockchain and you'll see how Python can be used for the many aspects that make up a Blockchain and Cryptocurrency.

In my opinion, a perfect course project is challenging, interesting, something you know from real-life but also not overly complex. And that's all the case for the Blockchain! It poses some nice challenges where a lot of different Python features can be used to overcome them. It also is something we hear about all the time and yet no one knows how it works. And we can dive into the core Blockchain concepts without spending 100+ hours working on it.

What's in the course?

Great question! Here's a brief summary:

  • A summary of Python and the Blockchain technology
  • All the base Python syntax you need to know (variables, operators, functions, ...)
  • Loops and conditional statements
  • More complex data structures like tuples or dictionaries
  • A closer look at built-in functions and the standard library Python ships with
  • String manipulation
  • How to work with files
  • Error handling
  • Debugging
  • Object-oriented programming with classes and inheritance
  • Internal & external modules (packages)
  • How to spin up an Http server with the Flask package
  • Handling Http requests (sending & receiving)
  • And more!

Is this course for you?

It's for you if ...

  • You want to get into programming => Python is a great "first language" since it's easy to learn and very versatile
  • You want to broaden your horizon => Are you a web developer? Want to learn something new? Here you go!
  • You're interested in Python for web development => This course will teach you Python in general but there are two modules where we'll also dive into web development a bit
  • You're interested in the Blockchain technology => You'll learn the core concepts of it as a side-effect of this course!
  • You know Python but want to practice it => The course project is challenging and taken from real-life - there probably is no better practice

The reviews on the Feedback were simply superb. All praise for Max. So far, the experience has been in sync with them. Phenomenal, I am halfway through and am loving every bit of it. The instructor has a highly organized way of explaining concepts and backs it up with an exciting Project.

Oleh Bodunov

First of all, it is the best Python course you could possibly find. It covers a lot of use cases you may use Python in the real world. A great blockchain introduction, and application that is being build here, comes as a great bonus to the course itself.

Daniel Paulse

Great well structured course with a lot of fun and engaging assignments. great for beginners and if you simply want to brush up on your python skills

As a self-taught professional I really know the hard parts and the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enable me to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. My track record of many 5-star rated courses, more than 1,000,000 students worldwide as well as a successful YouTube channel is the best proof for that.

The most rewarding experience for me is to see how people find new, better jobs, build awesome web applications, work on amazing projects or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of my content.

That's why, together with Manuel Lorenz, I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience and to share the pleasure of learning with our students.
